Private guitar lessons at The Songwriting School teach students not only how to play guitar but how the guitar can be an essential tool of the songwriter. Teaching to and from the song connects the concepts of music theory and the practical left- and right-hand dexterities to a meaningful end goal: playing songs you love by other artists and songs you'll come to love you have written and arranged yourself.
